An as yet unnamed company is making calls to Cleveland and Bradley County businesses soliciting advertising for a map publication and suggesting it is “working in conjunction with the Chamber.”

“This company is not working with the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce,” said Nancy Neal, vice president of communications. “Local companies are calling us to inquire about the solicitation and to ask if we are indeed working with this company. We have not yet determined the name of the company, but will continue to seek the source of the misleading information.”

Neal continued, “The Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce utilizes staff members to sell advertising for our publications and informs the Chamber membership when such campaigns are underway. If you have any questions about calls representing the Chamber that appear questionable, please call us for clarification.”
